A great, hour long album by australian experimentalist 'chalkwhitehands'. This album is actually one long composition divided in shorter segments for easier listening. At first I thought this album was nothing special, but after taking some more dedicated listening sessions I began to love it. Give this album enough attention and you'll be in for a sure treat.
These works began as found midi files of old hymn tunes arranged for four voices. They were then manipulated and expanded by a process of "cell division" - each bar of music being repeated according to a random algorithm resulting in the four voices phasing in and out of sync with each other.
The resulting manipulated midi file was then used to control various synths that were set up to be play non specific pitches.
A variety of processing devices were used to further manipulate the resulting sounds.
The results were then layered.
The pieces form a whole, b ut may be listened to individually.
